And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
What is micro-stamping?

Microstamping, or ballistic imprinting, is a patented process that uses laser technology to engrave a tiny marking of the make,
model and serial number on the tip of a gun’s firing pin to allow an imprint of that information on spent cartridge cases.
Supporters of the technology say it will be a “game changer,” allowing authorities to quickly identify the registered guns
used in crimes. Opponents claim the process is costly, unreliable and may ultimately impact the local economies that heavily
depend on the gun industry, including Ilion, N.Y., where Remington Arms maintains a factory, and Hartford, Conn., where Colt’s
manufacturing is headquartered.
“Mandatory microstamping would have an immediate impact of a loss of 50 jobs,” New York State Sen. James Seward,
a Republican whose district includes Ilion, said, adding that Remington employs 1,100 workers in the town.
“You’re talking about a company that has options in other states. Why should they be in a state that’s hostile to legal gun manufacturing?
There could be serious negative economic impact with the passage of microstamping and other gun-control laws.”

Americanism is a matter of the spirit and of the soul.
Our allegiance must be purely to the United States.
We must unsparingly condemn any man who holds any other allegiance."

None of the above, absolutely NONE.
Just checked the "View Results" and I'm disgusted that anyone on this forum would check any box on that poll.
None of the above.

"A heavily armed citizenry is not about overthrowing the government; it is about preventing the government from overthrowing liberty. A people stripped of their right of self defense is defenseless against their own government." -source
In the interest of fairness, I added another option to the poll.
You might get more responses this way.
I support restrictions on automatic weapons, artillery, mortars, explosive rounds, grenades, missiles, etc. I support instant background checks, although they aren't all that effective against first time offenders like Tucson or Aurora. I support that felons, violent offenders, and people using guns in the commision of a crime should not be allowed to have them...
I think it is foolish to think that there should be NO regulation on firearms.

Technically speaking, a Constitutional literalist would be right. What part of "infringed" do you not understand?just a Constitutional-literalist would argue that ALL gun regulations are illegal, ALL regulations upon political speech & political assembly are illegal......meaning that a group can protest whenever they like, wherever they like, however they like, for as long as they like.
Baloney.but of course, society would drive to a hault if we allowed such things. That's why we have protest permits. And that same logic applies to gun regulations.
Same tired argument was used when concealded handgun permits became the norm. The socialist/liberal/generally confused types insisted that society as we knew it would cease to exist and blood would run in the streets.
This country faired quite well without regulations of guns and speech in its infancy.
A protest "permit" is BS. Its just another infringement of freedom of speech. If you dont get the permit issued, then you cant protest? Its just another tool used by weak men that want to control.
Protest permits and CHL's are also a form of taxation in that the .gov gets more of your money to 'allow' you the exercise of God-given rights.
As always, follow the money...
That totally ignores how easily the microstamping can be erased by brushing it with a diamond knife sharpener. And how about plain old dirt on the micro engraving? How about all the firearms and parts around that already exist? Plan to outlaw anything that does not have a unique firing pin with the microengraving on it?
My very first gun repair, performed when I was about 15, was to manufacture a new firing pin for my .22LR. Plan to outlaw files and scrap metal?
No, microstamping is only a "reasonable restriction" that does nothing, but offer a stepping stone to further restrictions, that do nothing for the perceived problems, except the perceived problem that firearms are not illegal.
None of the above works for me.
